Kasey Kahne grabbed the lead on the restart following a caution with 23 laps remaining and held off Matt Kenseth in a two-lap shootout to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday night.
Kahne's first win of the season earned him a spot in the Chase for the Sprint cup. Kenseth also qualified for the Chase on points.
Denny Hamlin was third, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and Danica Patrick.
Meanwhile, Tony Stewart's much-anticipated return to racing ended a little more than halfway through the race.
Stewart hit the wall for the second time after his right front tire blew out on Lap 172, ending his night with a 41st-place finish.
Matt Holliday hit his third home run in two games and broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run single, rallying the St. Louis Cardinals past the Chicago Cubs 9-6 on Sunday.
Holliday had three hits and four RBIs for the Cardinals, who began the day one game behind first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central.
St. Louis second baseman Kolten Wong left in the top of the eighth after falling backward when he tried to catch a popup in short right field. He appeared to hurt his head and shoulder, and was replaced by Pete Kozma.
Kozma, in his third stint with St. Louis this season, led off the bottom half with a double. It was his second hit in four at-bats this year. After failing to get down two bunt attempts, Daniel Descalso got the third one down and beat Carlos Villanueva's throw to first for a single.
Chris Heisey hit two home runs, including a tiebreaking shot in the ninth inning, and Johnny Cueto overcame an early jolt to earn his 16th win as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Sunday.
Heisey's solo drive with one out in the ninth off Jared Hughes (6-5) helped the Reds avoid getting swept at PNC Park. Heisey began the day with just five homers in 229 at-bats this year.
Cueto (16-8) gave up a home run to Josh Harrison on his first pitch of the game. Jordy Mercer homered off Cueto in the second for a 2-0 lead.
Cueto wound up pitching eight innings and tied Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw for the major league lead in victories.
Aroldis Chapman struck two in a perfect ninth for his 29th save.
Russell Henley made five birdies in a seven-hole stretch Sunday and had a 6-under 65 to take a one-shot lead in the Deutsche Bank Championship.
For the second straight week, a FedEx Cup playoff event is wide open going into the final round.
This one includes Rory McIlroy.
The world's No. 1 player had a 64. McIlroy was two shots off the lead at the TPC Boston heading into the Labor Day finish. Jason Day (69) and Chris Kirk (64) also were two behind. Ten players were separated by four shots.
Henley won the Honda Classic in a four-man playoff earlier this year. He was at 12-under 201.
Billy Horschel birdied his last three holes for a 67 and will play in the final group with Henley.
Jose Quintana allowed two runs over seven innings to earn his first win in more than a month, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 after trading Adam Dunn on Sunday afternoon.
The White Sox sent Dunn to Oakland before the game, ending a disappointing four-year run in Chicago for the veteran slugger.
Then, they took advantage of a season-high four errors by the Tigers to salvage a four-game split.
Adam Eaton doubled twice and scored two runs. Carlos Sanchez had two hits and also scored twice. Avisail Garcia singled, doubled and drove in two.
Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 12 games, and the White Sox won after dropping 10 of 12.
